pole dancer 101



This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School (California) staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine. This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children's absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's failing grades changed to passing grades - even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough schoolwork to pass their classes. This is the actual answering machine message for the school:
"Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all the options before making a selection:

* To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1
* To make excuses for why your child did not do his work- Press 2
* To complain about what we do - Press 3
* To swear at staff members - Press 4
* To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5
* If you want us to raise your child - Press 6
* If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone - Press 7
* To request another teacher, for the third time this year - Press 8
* To complain about bus transportation - Press 9
* To complain about school lunches - Press 0

* If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behavior, classwork, homework and that it's not the teachers' fault for your child's lack of effort: Hang up and have a nice day!

If you can read this - thank a teacher! If you are reading it in English - thank a veteran!

That is as sweet to hear as the sugar in my coffee taste.

BTW regarding the pic, Darla had a big ass head and a big ass mouth. Big mouth....HHmmmm...maybe that is why Alfalfa loved her.

That was pretty funny up until the last line.

We're supposed to thank a vet because we're reading in English? C'mon, really? The last vets that defended us were in WWII, and there are only about 8 of them left alive. None of the living vets have protected anything other than our continued access to cheap foreign goods
